Unless you have a postage stamp yard, sounds like a lot more than one truckload. And if you were thinking a berm, remember drainage from your yard will have to be able to make it through the berm - they work in both directions.

Have you talked to the street department ? Perhaps you can get them to solve the issue if the water is coming from the street.

Otherwise, you can find a lot of previous answers to similar questions about topsoil or general fill in the Lawn & Garden - Landscaping Materials link under Browse Projects, at lower left.

Your provider categories in Search the List would be Landscaping for delivery and placement and grading/dressing - or for large quantity some Excavation contractors.

For delivery and dumping only Mulch and Topsoil for topsoil, for general fill and gravel Stone and Gravel is the Search the List category to find providers. Note for your purpose you would need a relatively impermeable material, not an open gravel or clean stone product, because you do not want signficant leak-through.

And if close to the street or in its easement, pay attention to permitting requirements.

One other possibility, depending on your situation and setback requirements, would be a planter with relatively impermeable topsoil as a barrier.
